3 Dives Jerk Centre and Annual Jerk Festival
Negril’s annual jerk festival is hosted by 3 Dives Jerk Centre. 3 Dives has graced many a guidebook as a top pick, and for good reason: their homemade jerk sauce and jerk lobster are the best you’ll taste on this western side of Jamaica. For a small cover, under US$5, you get access to tasty eats prepared by the area and island’s best jerk chefs at an all day and night festival. From jerk lobster to chicken and pork, watch your meal grilled before you and mingle with locals and visitors across the various picnic tables and benches. Facing the sea, on the cliffs of Negril, 3 Dives is a perfect venue to eat and relax under the stars. Any other day, it still serves up some of the best jerk in town, daily—you just need to show up after 4 p.m. and have a good dose of patience.
